Rawlinsons are acutely aware of the impact we all have on the natural environment and in particular the construction industry. One of Rawlinsons company objectives is to minimise our own impact on our environment through sustainable practices and also, to encourage and promote this ethos through the projects we help create.

Cost X Logo

All Rawlinsons quantity surveying staff use the industry's most widely recognised estimating software on the market, Cost X. This programme ensures accurate and efficient costing measurements, therefore providing additional time available for cost comparisons of alternating construction methodology or systems.

Rawlhouse Publishing

Rawlinsons compiles and edits Rawlinsons Australian Construction Handbook and Rawlinsons Construction Cost Guide, each of which has an extensive national circulation annually. We also publish a third publication, the Rawlinsons Process Engineering Handbook, compiled by author Steve Howard, is an invaluable tool for all involved in mining and oil and gas.

We are proud to maintain the most comprehensive and current library of pricing information and data sources in Australia.
